Cast veteran Kenan Thompson has a different opinion however, believing most of the black female performers that have auditioned to join the cast simply weren't "ready."

This past weekend during 'SNL's' heartwarming season finale, cast and crew bid adieu to both Bill Hader and Fred Armisen, while less in focus was the fate of fellow veteran Jason Sudeikis.

SNL Tackles Gun Control Law

NBC
NBC

SNL hasn't been too political in recent months, but last night's cold open saw the show jump right back into current events, taking on all of the recent movement on gun control laws...or lack thereof. In true SNL fashions, both sides of the debate come out looking pretty moronic.

‘SNL’ Goes Over the Fiscal Cliff

NBC

With the election a month behind us, 'Saturday Night Live' has to find another political subject to latch onto in the coming weeks and the Fiscal Cliff crisis certainly feels right. Last night's episode continued the 2012 tradition of opening episodes with something politically themed with a typical presidential press conference sketch, where Jay Pharoah's President Obama took the stage to address the Fiscal Cliff. Naturally, things get weird pretty quickly.

The 2012 presidential election is over, which means that Saturday Night Live will have to find other major events to skewer for the next four years. Last night's cold open not only felt like an appropriate climax to all of this season's political sketches, it felt like a tribute to Jason Sudeikis' always great Mitt Romney, who, much like his real life is counterpart, will soon vanish from the public eye.

SNL Presents the Ultimate Action Movie!

NBC

Sometimes, if feels like Saturday Night Live is just an excuse for a bunch of talented mimics to try out their best and newest impressions. But when they're as good as those compiled in this faux trailer that played during last night's episode, we're perfectly okay with that. A parody of 'Taken 2,' 'The Expendables' and just about every other modern action movie, it's easily one of the strongest video shorts to be featured on the show in recent memory.

SNL: A New Season, a New Obama

SNL New Obama
NBC

SNL has never been shy about skewering politics and with last night's season premiere, it came out swinging. The cold open was as aggressively political (and hilarious) as the show has ever been, introducing a new performer as President Obama and satirizing the current presidential race.

Earlier today we were ecstatic to confirm the news that longtime 'Saturday Night Live' star Jason Sudeikis would stick with the NBC sketch-comedy series through another season, rather than depart with Andy Samberg, Kristen Wiig and Abby Elliott.  Now, as 'Saturday Night Live' prepares to launch season 38 this Saturday night, we have even more turnover to report, though this time internally.  Fred Armisen will be stepping down from the role of President Barack Obama, but who will take his place?
